Have copied this idea from the Wire board where they are going nuts over signing Inglis.
How would our top 10 stack up?
Don't need to have had stella careers for us, more about the gravity and excitement of the signing.

My picks in no particular order,

Danny Buderus (anybody ever signed an Ozzy and NSW skipper before?)

Peacock - made all the difference

Webb- was current kiwi international in his prime

Tony Carroll- as above.

Ali Lau- as above

Ellery Hanley - collosus of the game

Keith Senior- was very sought after at the time

Iestyn Harris--all class and best British half I've seen

Tom Briscoe - was Hulls best player and International class when we signed him

Adrian Vowles- hadn't he just won Man of Steel when we signed him?

This choice is from mid 90's onwards when I started watching league and playing at school.

Vowels won the MOS 99 and signed for us in 2001, about 18 months past his best.

We signed Hanley in 91 didn't we?

At least he'd lose his virginity.

Thanks for the info

Had to include Hanley though as it puts the Inglis signing into context, ie) a player of magnitude with a good few years left in them.....

Schofield?

Craig Innes was a great signing, and a very good player.
